Summer courses offered June 1 - July 17.

COVID-19 Contingency Plan

Hello Kids’ College families! In the event that social distancing recommendations do not permit in-person summer camps, a decision about Kids’ College will be made and announced at least two weeks prior to the start of the scheduled course. Thankfully, if necessary, we are prepared to offer camps in an online format; so rest assured, we WILL be offering Kids College enrichment programming this summer in the most effective capacity available for the time frame. We hope our attendees are able to join us for in-person programming, but we are prepared to adapt and offer the same high-quality enrichment programming in the format that is best for the safety of our community.

If you would be more comfortable with a virtual option, or shifting your child’s enrollment to a program later in the summer, or if have any questions, please email ahart7@nwacc.edu.  As always, if NWACC initiates a cancellation of a Kids’ College course, there will be a full refund to any registrations for that course.



Kids' College 2020 is offering numerous fun, educational half-day and full-day summer courses for children ages 6-17. Classes range from robotics and 3D printing to creative arts and culinary, allowing young students the chance to experience a college campus while learning from subject matter experts and discovering new passions.

Register your child for Kids’ College, and make an investment in the future by giving the youth in your life the gift of curiosity, confidence and skill development!

Volunteer and leadership opportunities are also available to those aged 15 - 17. Teenagers will have the opportunity to work with younger kids and develop soft skills that are most desirable to employers.
